Czech billionaire Andrej Babis headed for fresh political talks aimed at forming a majority cabinet after his first government failed to win a vote of confidence in parliament and was forced to resign on Wednesday.
Potential coalition partners snubbed Babis on concerns he may be charged over alleged fraud. Still, the month-old cabinet may remain in a caretaker mode. President Milos Zeman has vowed to appoint Babis as premier again, giving him another chance to rule. The second-richest Czech said Wednesday he’ll hold preliminary talks with the Social Democrats, his former coalition partners.
